My father copied this recipe on the back of of a note pad.
I have no idea where he found Shoo Fly Pie.
I think that the name may come from the fact that
who ever makes it would not want to share it with the flies.

EMAIL COMMENT: Shoo-fly pie is a Pennsylvania Dutch treat.  It's been made there by the Amish for years.  It got it's name from the fact that, after being baked, it's often placed on the window sill to cool.  Given that it contains lots of sugar and syrup, you have to shoo the flies away!  That's the truth.
